to the test. >> let them vote! >> the other big wild card, sandy. a week after the storm recovery efforts are still winding slowly through the hardest hit. new jersey governor chris christie who praised president obama's response to sandy repeated his support for mitt romney. sort of. >> on tuesday i'm voting for mitt romney because i think he's the best guy for the job. it doesn't mean that i can't turn to the president of the united states of america and say to him, thank you, sir, for providing good leadership in this crisis. >> and whom do you trust? the grid iron predicts. a redskin hometown defeat favors the challenger but the lsu/alabama matchup offers good news for the incumbent. >> and good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in democracy plaza in new york city. joining me for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor, and managing editor of post politics.com and mark halperin political analyst for "time" and msnbc. so, first to you, chris, let's talk about the state of the race. >> well, we're almost there, andrea. i think the state of the race is that president obama retains a

in staten island on the hurricane and storm sandy, let's talk about tomorrow. there's a storm on capitol hill, and it's going to be all involved david petraeus. >> former general david petraeus testifying on the hill, andrea. i heard at the top of the show kelly o'donnell talking about how they're doing it in the morning, and they're hoping it's not going to be a circus. it's going to be a circus. this story, i think, has captivated people whether it's for the tawdry elements or petrae petraeus's high profile, he's there to talk about benghazi and the four people including ambassador chris stevens who died there. not to talk about the reason that he resigned, this extra-marital affair. i think it's going to be something close to a circus, which is unfortunate because i think there are legitimate questions on benghazi. i'm sure they'll get asked anyway, but my guess is they'll be overshadowed a little bit by the coverage by the fact he's out there for one of the first times since all of this information has come to light. >> and circling back to things mentioned earlier about susan rice.

sandy. he taped a bunch of radio calls yesterday. did tom joiner this morning. 10 satellite interviews this afternoon. and we didn't want to tell him this on the plane but he's going back to do satellite this afternoon. between that playing some basketball. he's busy but relaxed. again, i think he feels he's in a good place. we have made the case in this race for building this economy from the middle out, moving this economy forward, and juxtapose that with mitt romney's theory of extending tax breaks to the wealthiest as a way of building our economy and we know what happened the last time we did that, it ended in economic devastation. we have a strong case that we're making today on election day. >> and finally, robert, if the president is fortunate enough to be re-elected, what do you think his first priorities are, especially since most likely if he is re-elected it's go to be a status quo, potentially a democratic still, but most certainly a heavily partisan and republican house. >> right. well look, i think first and foremost, everybody understands the fiscal cliff issues that we

company owns the crane that collapsed, you're right, in new york city during super storm sandy. >>> dairy farmers angry over low milk prices soaked riot police were thousands of gallon lons of milk in brussels. the farmers rolled into the city on tractors. >>> and scary video, this a car crashing through a jewelry store barely missing 16-month-old toddler who had just past the point of impact. the store owner ran across to make sure his son was all right. the child was thrown three feet in the air and landed safely out of harm's way. >>> the driver accidentally crashed her car into the store while coming in to pick up her jewelry. despite backing down on his controversial decrees egypt's president mohamed morsi faced another day of upheaval. huge crowds gathering in tahrir square and police crashed in the streets of cairo, scenes reminiscent of the revolution nearly two years ago. ayman mohyeldin has the latest. is this calming down at all, ayman? he made some concessions so there was a thought, perhaps, from morsi supporters that the protesters would begin to back down. doesn't seem so.
